WILL BUILD MANY LINES, The Northwestern Planning to Cover All Open Territory. Algona Bids Fair to Become a Great Railroad Center—News of the Railways in General. The dissolution of the Galbi'aith firm comes Feb. 1. For a week the big dissolution sale continues, after which the invoice will be taken. The big clearing sale at Brownell's is still on, and the windows are full of bargains. It is one of the biggest clearing sales Algona has had. Deputy Sheriff McDonald is the owner of as handsome un oleander as one often sees. He allows it to decorate Supt. Van Erdewyk's room. Word comes to A. D. Clarke that H. J. Griswold, who had interests in Kossuth, and who was a brother-in-law of E. O. Fitz of Germania, is dead in California. It will pay our readers to peruse Geo. F. Holloway's list of land bargains in this issue. George is an energetic and reliable land man and will do what he agrees to. ___ Owing to an error in the statement of Geo. C. Call, published last week, the statement is republished in corrected form. The error was made in this office. The petition for a curfew bell is to be presented Saturday night to the city council. It has nearly 500 signatures. It is not known whether the council will act favorably or not. The largest turkeys marketed this year at the E. B. Higley poultry house were sold by J. R. Bright, one hen weighing 18i pounds. They were of thoroughbred bronze stock. The Titonka Topic will be issued tomorrow. It opens with 21 columns of live advertising, and the boys could not get it all set up for last week. The Titonka business men know what booms a town. _ Col. Cooke gets word from Des 'Moines that instead of the Fourth regiment, the new military organization in the northwest corner of the state will the 52nd, retaining its regular army standing. ___ Dr. Richmond, father of our electric wiring expert, was thrown from his buggy at Ames Friday and his shoulder bone was dislocated. Dr. Richmond used to practice in Algona, and built the house Horan Bros, now own. The teachers' meeting at Burt was a big success. The attendance was large Burt was hospitable, and the papers and discussions were lively. A paper that excited considerable discussion was read by Miss Essex of the Algona schools on vertical writing. D. A. Haggard is planning on putting a fine porch on his home this spring. He will also put in some plate glass windows, rebuild his barn and refit generally. He says he is going to have his premises in keeping with the new school building improvements. Bishop Vincent's lecture at the opera house Saturday night is the third lecture course entertainment. Bishop Vincent spoke in Algona 20 odd years ago, and is pleasantly remembered. He is a genial talker, and will tell about " Tom and His Teachers," his favorite lecture. ^ Geo. C. Call gets word that Col. Stedman, who has been in Algona a great deal in connection with the Iowa Central extension, is not expected to live He was a genial man to meet ana a fine railway promoter, and [many hereabouts will regret his death if H occurs. He was in splendid health when he was in Algona. The building committee of the Methodist church settled with Contractor Gross last week and he has gone. Goeders is getting the carpets in this week and the pews are being set up. The date of dedication will be fixed soon. It will probably be put after the revival meetings that are to be held, and late enough so the electric hght= will be turned on. Engineer Hill and his corps of surveyors ran the Belmond line to the G. B. Hutchins farm last week, and have gone home. This survey is for the purpose of making an estimate of materials needed and cost of cons^uon. - It is, however, a survey that followed when the road is built. afternoon train and Sheriff Dowd went right on with him. He stole a team, buggy, suit of clothes, and numerous other things. The capture is very creditable to our Kossuth officials. The G. M. Johnson ware house got in a car load of seeders yesterday, and a car load of drags and disc harrows Monday. It has in a car load of Birdsail wngons, and next week will have a car load of planters and cultivators. It will pay our readers to look during the coming weeks for the advertisements of these goods. The Johnsons are preparing for a big season, and are getting in lots of standard implements early. A public meeting is to be held at the court house Saturday evening for the purpose of reorganizing Company F. Col. Cooke has a roll at his office which all intending to enlist can sign at any time. But Saturday evening the roll will be at the meeting. Company F has been a good thing for Algona, and a good thing for the young men. The town ought not to drop it now that it has a first chance to go in. Four young Irvington men and one Algonian made Sunday night troublesome for people in tbe south part of town, all of them being drunk and disorderly. They were finally rounded up and put in jail till morning when they were brought before 'Squire Clarke and fined. Some of them had been there before, but at least two of them had no business in such doings. We withhold the names of all this time. County Attorney Cohenour is investigating the legal status of the claims of W. H. Jones and Mitchell & Rickard against the county for the accident that resulted from the breaking of the bridge across the Black Cat. Mr. Jones asks $2,000 damages for bis injuries and Mr. Mitchell has a claim in of 8325 for damages to the threshing engine. The board will doubtless take final action at the coming Jan. 30 meeting. If the claims are rejected, as seems likely, a law suit is probable. Mr. Durdall says his hotel building will be 66x135 feet, three stories high. The corner on the first floor will be a store room 44x70 feet, with glass front all around. On each side of this room there will be a wide hotel entrance, the arrangement being like the Great Northern in Chicago, the office, reception rooms, and dining room occupying the ground floor. He will use pressed brick, heat with steam, light with both electricity and gas. It will cost from $20,000 up. He is putting his proposition in writing. A well known Dnbuque man who visits Algona is Wm. Wellington. He was up last week and among other interesting items of information he told his friends that he had had his monument erected in the cemetery. He has had a boulder weighing 27 tons taken from his farm in Franklin county to Dubuque. It is 14 feet high and it cost him?600 to move it. But it is the unique monument in Dubuque and be has been offered several thousand dollars for it. He says these boulder monuments are a great fad in the east. The Northwestern railway company is evidently planning to occupy all the open territory adjacent to its lines. A half dozen small extensions and connecting links are already well on towards being ready for the graders. They are all in territory connected directly with the Algona line, and are all of great importance to us locally. The Northwestern evidently intends to cover the ground northwest of our line, and before next fall it will be carrying its freight and passengers from all over the northwest through Algona. The Sac City Connection. In conversation with Gardner Cowles, Mr. Brown, the Northwestern right-of- way man, said last week that in his opinion the lino from Sac City to Algona would be put in this spring before the line from Burt to Sanborn is, that is the work will be pushed faster. Ho said he knew nothing of the purposes of the company, but that is his guess. There seems to be no doubt anywhere that the line will be built, and that .it will come to Rolfe, then turn east ncross the west branch of the Des Moines to Brodgate, then northeast to Algona, or to a connecting point south of Algona. From Lake Chrystal to Now Ulm. Another important little line from the Algona standpoint is the connection from Lake Chrystal to New Ulm in Minnesota. This is a short route, but opens up another big northwest territory to traffic down the Elmore line, and makes it all the more certain that the line through Algona is to be the runway for all the North western's big systems in Minnesota and the Dakotas. The company is incorporated to put in this line, Marvin Hughitt president. The Watonwnn Jjlno. A company of stock holders of the Omaha branch of tbe North western has been organized to build a road from Madelia, Minn., southeast through Fairmont to Kossuth, striking the county line in Eagle or Grant township, and probably running on lo Burl. If this line is built it will give the Northwestern entire control of the country north and west. A Through Passenger Train. It is reported that as soon as the Burt-Sanborn line is in a solid passenger train will run from up in North Dakota to Chicago. It will not be switched on to the Denver tniinnon the main line, but will have right-of-way of its own. Algona will be on a great through passenger line. A New JAno Out of Uoonc. Articles of incorporation have been filed with the secretary of state for the Boone County Railroad company, with headquarters at Cedar Rapids. Its object is to build a cut-off on the Northwestern main line, to shorten the line in Boone county, and make an easier route around the dangerous Moingona crossing of the Des Moines river. The present line enters Boone county from the east; it leaves Boone almost due south, running about six miles in this direction to the point where the river is crossed to Moingona: then from Moingona it runs northwesterly about 10 miles. It is proposed to cross the Des Moines river on a direct line from Boone, avoiding this circuitous route, and at the same time making an easier and less dangerous crossing than that at Moingona. Tbe company is incorporated with $1,500,000 capital, the directors being Marvin Hughitt, M. M. Kirkman, J. M. Whitman, Albt-rtKeep and J. B. Red field. The company paid Sl.olo.50 filing fee. here from Kentucky. Ben Smith, the owner of Gilderaleeve, E. P. Blrcher, who last fall brought a stallion and two race mares from the same state, Joe Murray, the owner of Grover C., and G. F. Holloway, who owns a choice young horse by Koasuth, are men who are no novices in the racing business. The horses recently brought here by Mr. Bircher are good ones and will make their appearance on the track here at the June meeting. Notice to Pay Up.

When will the town ever have a better offer than Mr. Durdull makes? H. V. Hawkins, the sewing machine man, is going out on a mail letting tour for the Ambrose A. Call company. John G. Smith is expecting the now steel bridge any day for the mill crossing. The piers have been roady for some time. The statement of the Kossuth State bank in this insue culls attention to that reliable institution. It is a very flattering showing. al- Happy New Year I want you all to be happy, and I know you will be if you buy your groceries from me during the year 1899. ames Patterson Every Man Needs a ahoo repair outfit—tools und liiBln onough to mend the Bhocs for tho wholo fumlly.

CLARKE & Co. 1 ne survey was not run into town, as no de- eteion bas yet been reached about where to cross the river. Sheriff Dowd ofFoH, Dodge was in Algona Monday to ge t a bowe thief who bad been caught by Sheriff Chris tensenanl his deputy, McGivney of Mountain Lake, McQivney brought him in on Bigelovr came up again Monday to trv and fix up about his engine for Ibe electric lights. He claims that there- was a misprint in the specifications furnished the city by the Sioux City engine maker and that no such engine is made as the one the city was to have. He has Attorney Curtiss engaged, and still says he will put in the engine that was brought here unless the city restrains him, acd then he will resort to law. One boiler is set and the smoke stack is up. Everything is in readiness for the engine, and lights can be turned on in 10 days aJier it is ordered. The supreme court has sent back an interesting case. Mrs. Lund, when Lund's affairs were closed op, at fir=J took her homestead in place of her dower. Afterwards, however, she decided to choose her third ID pSac-e of holding the homeiU-fcd, and brought action In court to enforce her claim. The lower court held tbs>4 stoe could not then change. This dedifioo is reversed but ibe attorneys do not yet know on what ground. The point seems to be that Morehoase apa Burgman bold claims of $2,«fl0 that are lieos on tbe homestead. If Mrs, Lund is eiven her dower, it will corer the same property free from these claims. H she gets her dower Morehouse and Burgroan will be left out ia the eoid. Buildiue Into Sioux City. Marvin Hughitt has told Sioux City people that the Northwestern will build from Moville to Sioux City this spring, a distance of 18 miles.
